New Zealand’s West Coast vacation plan

This vacation plan from Frommer’s starts off in Haast, a town on the Haast river, and a jet boat ride to where the San Andreas Fault line meets the Alpine Fault line.

Then off to Franz Josef time to do some hiking on warm glaciers where tourists can walk around in T-shirt and jeans. Then comes the drive from Franz Josef to Hokitika, voted one of the worlds top ten best drives by Lonely Planet thanks to the ocean views.

That drive takes you to Lake Brunner Lodge after traveling 22 kilometers on a dirt road, where you get gourmet meals and nature walks for 180.00/night (and up).

    Wow, wish I could go there! I’m sure I will eventually as my son’in law is from there, living in NY now, with my daughter and they’re baby. Thanks!
